Comics and kindness

  • Print

For the last two years I have worked respite with a couple children with special needs. One of these children is a 13-year-old autistic boy who loves Pokémon trading cards, so a trip to the local comic book store is a weekly outing for us.

We frequent Galaxy Comics on Henderson Highway for "our" Pokémon fix. Every time we go the staff is so kind and helpful. They always spend time helping "us" with finding cards, lets us spread out and take up their counter, make conversation, remember what "we" likes and are very sweet and kind. They welcome us into the store and ask us how we have been, comment on his T-shirts, and answer all our many questions; this makes my day! They are not only kind to my 13-year-old but at every kid and person who comes in. I just want to thank Galaxy Comics and their staff for going above and beyond what it is to be a comic book store.
